Operable flood windows are single units consisting of two components. The bottom component is a fixed window with high-impact resistant flood glass. This is important to safeguard against floating debris and objects during flooding events. The top component is similar to a standard operable window. Operable flood windows are designed to withstand flooding only up to the sill of the operable component and can be customized to your requirements.
Fixed flood windows are completely sealed, and therefore can withstand total submersion by floodwaters. Exact flood depth capabilities are determined by window size and engineering requirements.
*Flood window sizes may be limited by engineering requirements and flood conditions.
